Selkirk's Rugby clubs coaches Ally Dickson, Ewan Robbie and Brian Cassidy at the start of last season welcomed former Selkirk Coach Steve Scott then with Sale Sharks when he took a defence session with the selkirk players. Steve has just been appointed Skills coach with the Scotland squad. Steve is a regular visitor back to Selkirk and was at the Selkirk v Hillhead game just before Christmas.

FORMER Selkirk coach Steve Scott will join interim head coach Scott Johnson’s new-look Scotland management team for this year’s RBS 6 Nations Championship.

Scott will work alongside Johnson, former England No. 8 Dean Ryan (interim forwards coach), Matt Taylor (defence coach), and specialist coaches Duncan Hodge and Massimo Cuttitta with the national team.

Galashiels-born Scott, 39, a member of the management team that led Scotland A to a 35-0 victory over England Saxons last year and who coached at Sale Sharks, will be an interim skills coach.

Talking about his appointment, Scott said: “It’s great to be back coaching and to continue my association with Scottish Rugby, which has meant a huge amount to me throughout my life.”

A regular visitor back to Selkirk, Scott took a defence session at the start of last season and was at the Selkirk v Hillhead game just before Christmas.

Johnson commented: “I’m delighted we have secured the services of Steve for this year’s championship.

“To get someone of that calibre is a real coup. With his background of having played 11 times for Scotland, he knows what it means to wear the jersey.

Scottish Rugby CEO Mark Dodson added: “Steve and Dean will start work on Monday.

“I believe in both that we have a combination here of hard-nosed experience and deep-rooted understanding of Scottish rugby and its players, which Scott Johnson and his management team will be able to call upon.”
